Following the July 19th Tornado Community leaders identified the importance of moving forward with a new Master Plan for Downtown Marshalltown as part of the recovery process. The Martha-Ellen Tye Foundation supported the plan with a grant in the amount of $100,000. This funding was matched with an Economic Adjustment Assistance grant from the US Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration also in the amount of $100,000.

The City of Marshalltown awarded a contract to Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc. (SEH) to work with community members to complete the plan. 

A project website (www.DowntownMarshalltown.com) was developed as part of the planning process and will remain active until 10/31/2019.
